    Hello! So, I was trying to download a game from the internet. I opened up the installer and did all that which you normally do. Now, sometime later, Microsoft defender told me I had a virus. I opened the file details and told the program to Remove the threat, but it still says that there is a problem, so I went in the info tab, went to the location where it said there was a virus, and perma-deleted it, didn't send into the recycle bin, permanently deleted it. But, it's STILL saying I have the virus. I have Show hidden files turned on, I don't know what it is, could someone help? Please see the attachments for more info, and have a nice day! If you need more info, please do tell me, I'll give it to you. I personally think it's a bug, but I'm no specialist.

  2. My Firefox invaded by the Matrix? (UI Glitching)

    alright, I know I keep saying I found the culprit and update with "yeaaaaa-no the culprit is still at large", but I legit think I found out what extension has been doing it in lately: nano defender

    I have been following all the steps to get nano defender working with ublock origin (subscribing to the nano filter lists, enabling one built in filter, setting the useresourceslocations, the works), and my copy of ublock origin is 1.24.3b5 (github version installed ala .js file trickery bypassing the strict no verified apps blockage). whenever I had it enabled, firefox starts glitching out like crazy, but with it removed entirely, nothing is happening, no user interface glitching of any sort, imma report this on my bug report then message the dev of that extension, see what they can do

  3. Windows Defender Not On

    Hi,



    Welcome to Microsoft Community. Your interest in Windows 10 is much appreciated.



    I would suggest you to try the below methods and check:

    Method 1:

    I would suggest you to run virus scan to make sure the computer is free from virus.

    The Microsoft Safety Scanner is a free downloadable security tool that provides on-demand scanning and helps remove virus, spyware, and other malicious software. It works with your existing antivirus software.

    Microsoft Safety Scanner Download - Windows security



    Method 2:

    Turn the Defender on. Follow the below steps:

    • In search, type Defender.
    • Now make the option ON by moving the slider accordingly.


    Method 3: Run the SFC.

    Follow the below steps:

    • Open Command Prompt.
    • Select “Run as Administrator”.
    • Type “sfc /scannow” without quotes and hit
      Enter.
    Now check for the issue.



    Keep us posted if you face any issues on windows in future. We will be glad to help you.

    I THINK Microsoft Defender is glitching out, but I'm not sure at all, it might be an actual...

    Better free alternative to microsoft defender?

    Windows Defender, Bill?

    Yeah. Same thing. Definitions to stay up to date on threats of course, but thats really just a list of tricks and signatures.


    You don't have to be. You just have to be smart enough to break their shit. You can take it apart and reverse engineer it and marvel later (I was impressed by a clients just recently). It's not hard to be up to date enough to keep malware a.) mostly off your machine in the first place and b.) limit it's damage when it does appear to your machine via network and best practices.

    Some may call my approach inconvienient, but it DOES work.
